Unknown shorebird


Recommended Posts

I saw this bird among some salt pannes in coastal New Hampshire. It was with a bunch of short-billed dowitchers and that’s what I assumed it was until I got home and looked at the photos. It’s bill is clearly curved downward. It looked bigger than a dunlin and doesn’t have the chest markings of a breeding stilt sandpiper. Any thoughts? Sorry for the terrible quality of the photos.

Thank you!

Just now, Peromyscus said:

I think the chest is overexposed/in strong sunlight, and I can see streaking on the sides.

Yeah, I think you’re right. The streaking is kind of easy to see in one of the pics.
